I always save on a white background..........but that is a good question for Blittle. I noticed her avatar matches the forum. Does mine too? I have a button on my program that "optimizes for the web" Maybe the banner is transparent???
And funny you should ask me to do a banner for you..........I was considering making a "banner-makers" trade thread, where we all do banners of each other's dogs.....
I feel so honored that you asked me to do this by the way You are the person that "inspired" me to give it a try!
Yes, by the way. send me some pics and I get on it this week. \/ :biggrin:
You can 'get rid of the white background" so to speak it you save for the web.. it saves it in gif format. However... If you have any drop shadows or gradients it will mess with things. Yes gif it mostly for animations, but it saves on a transparent background for 'regular' things.
Here is one I had started not done yet... but without the shadow saved as jif..
with a simple shadow
So if you want to use shadows... you need the white background. I hope that made some sense & it was helpful.
*I know you didn't ask me but... * LOL
And Fina---- Wonderful job--- You do GREAT Banners!!! Roxy got me started with Adobe too. I was using PSP7 and I like adobe much better.
Yep you can use the save for web function in Adobe for it. YOu can also do animations with it too. there is a check box.. animate. then a little "world" if you scroll down and you can see the animation.
Well.. I thought you guys knew how to do that..... Next time I learn something new to me and neat.... I will pass it on. If you guys already know it.. then PFFFT!! LOL na just kidding.
It took me forever to learn how to do that. I was thinking I know people do it, but I wanted to know HOW. LOL So I learned how. Some other boards that I am on, have colored backgrounds, I didn't always want the white behind my graphics.
here's what i was working on.. It HAS changed lol. But I like how it turned out.
If you want this flower photo to work with... (I love this one!) it is copyrtie..royalty free. I have a friend in OZ who took it for me. He's exellant with a camera. He sends me a lot of pics i can use.
